VISTAS OF MONTANA’S BIG SKY COUNTRY COME INTO FOCUS DURING NEW PHOTOGRAPHY WORKSHOP WEEKENDS AT TRIPLE CREEK RANCH
Award-winning photographers David Stoecklein and Kenton Rowe share techniques and trade secrets in two instructive four-day workshops this June
Triple Creek Ranch, the acclaimed Montana Relais & Chateaux resort, introduces two back-to-back Photography Workshop Weekends, scheduled June 4 – 7 and June 10 – 13, 2010. Ideal for both aspiring and more accomplished photographers, the workshop weekends welcome two of the country’s foremost professional photographers, David Stoecklein , known as the “photographer of the American West,” and Kenton Rowe, whose expertise includes wildlife, landscapes and ranch life. Two other Montana photographers will join Rowe on the second weekend. Over the four-day/three-night weekends, guests will have the opportunity to fine-tune their skills and swap trade secrets with instructors and fellow photographers while capturing the rustic romance, soulful cowboys and scenic surroundings of the Bitterroot Valley in Western Montana.
The weekends are the latest example of Triple Creek Ranch’s commitment to and appreciation for art. The resort is well-known for its extensive private collection of Western-genre art and frequently hosts artist-led workshop weekends featuring celebrated Western artists.
The weekend programs feature all the sumptuous services and amenities of Triple Creek Ranch. including accommodations in a luxury log cabin with wood-burning fireplace, stocked bar, and a private hot tub on the deck (or nearby); as well as photography workshop, one-on-one work critiques, and a continuous opportunity to ask questions about the world of professional photography in a personal, relaxed atmosphere. Meals will be enjoyed in the mountain-facing Lodge with cocktails in the Rooftop Lounge.
Guests will enjoy exploring (and photographing) the resort’s 600 tranquil acres. An Orvis-endorsed fly fishing resort, Triple Creek Ranch offers superb fly fishing on the Bitterroot River. Hiking and horseback riding through the Bitterroot National Forest afford great views of area wildlife (also perfect setting for outdoor photography). Guests can also enjoy the resort’s tennis, fitness center, and heated pool. For relaxation, a massage in the privacy of the guest cabin and a hot tub soak among the Ponderosa pines make inviting options. When curling up with a good book is the preference, a crackling log fire in the cabin is especially cozy.
